Solo Chord-Melody Songs
Here's That Rainy DayStarts on F minor and ends up in F major! Features long, descending bass line, some good hand stretches.
My RomanceAnother standard jazz ballad, with melody, chords and bass.
All The Things You AreSimple, bouncy-tempo'ed version with common chord voicings.
Some Day My Prince Will ComeFairly easy rendition of the Disney classic that's become a jazz standard. Starts off spare and rubato, later comes into tempo with bass line.
Message in a BottleI took some liberties with this Police/Sting tune and found some interesting grips to get the "5-stacks" that Sting is so fond of.
My One And Only LoveBeautiful jazz ballad with some "contrary motion" and challenging "grips."
Seven Come Eleven (A, V, P/A; Bonus Package available)Fast, fun bebop solo by the 'genius of the early electric guitar.'
Rose Room (A, V; Bonus Package available)Easier, medium tempo tune that got Charlie the job with Benny Goodman's band. (Has one fast lick, though!)
Airmail Special (Good Enough To Keep) (A, V; Bonus Package available)A wild, fast ride with a long chromatic run and a series of arpeggios!
Blues in B (A, V; Bonus Package available)Five times through the 12-bar blues in this impromptu studio jam. No fast stuff here, just lots of classic Charlie licks--plus a few "clams!"
